For FCC approvals, we operate an accredited Telecommunications Certification Body (TCB).
The TCB system was implemented in 2000 by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC). It was created to allow the FCC to step out of the product approvals role, and to focus more on regulating and market surveillance.
Until this system was implemented, most products which intentionally radiate radio frequency energy, and products which connect to the public switched telephone network, were required to be certified with the FCC. This usually meant waiting several months for an approval to sell your product. Compatible Electronics TCB (CETCB) can certify these types of products generally in less than two weeks.
Our scope of accreditation covers FCC Part 15, for intentional and unintentional radiators, and FCC Part 68.
European CE marking
Compatible Electronics has been testing for European compliance since the inception of the “new approach” directives. Let us assist you with your testing needs in pursuit of your CE mark.
The CE mark enables the free movement of products into and within the European market.
By placing a CE mark on a product the manufacturer is declaring, on their sole responsibility, that the product conforms to all legal requirements to achieve CE marking.
Prior to placing the product on the European market, a manufacturer performs an assessment of the product against all applicable EU Directives, and verifies compliance with the relevant essential requirements.
Not all products require the CE mark, only products subject to specific directives must bear the CE mark.
